Dr Richard studied Chiropractic at Murdoch University and had the privilege to join Hills Natural Health Centre after graduation. He loves the community and the spirit of the Hills and recently decided to make a big leap of faith and commit to the clinic for many years to come.
Dr Richard has a passion for nutrition, health and fitness and prior to obtaining his Chiropractic degree had many years of experience in the health and fitness industry. This has helped him to gain the necessary experience to restore and to detect structural distortions (which are a compensation of the body to stress). He has great understanding of how stressors (physical, chemical and emotional) may interfere with the central nervous system and lead to health problems.

Years of training has been put in to ensuring that SOT is a safe, gentle and very effective technique. He also uses other modalities such as; Manual Adjustment, Activator Method, Neural Organisation Technique, Soft Tissue Therapy (Gua Sha – similar to Graston Technique), Organic Reflexology, Kinesio Therapeutic Taping Technique and Physical Rehabilitation. Dr Richard can work with you to tailor a program to suit your specific needs.

He loves music and sings with the church choir. He loves a joke and enjoys a good laugh.
